Hey, i have a question. Is there a plan to standardize web programming ? Especially CSS? In other words, when a homepage that you make will work 100% equal on all browsers ? It such a pain in the as** to design a web page in firefox and then you open IE and looks horrible and different.

excuse my English

thanks !

CSS/HTML/XHTML is already standardized. IE, however is notoriously bad at following those standards. MS keeps saying they will get better, but the fact that their JavaScript engine, etc, are very different from the others makes things tough.

It's annoying how IE is so popular. If FF ruled the roost, there would be no problems. That said... IE8 is supposed to be standards-compliant.

Hi,

Well, anything that Micr0$0ft do has to be different. Go for open source, it always mean better.

Unfortunately, IE7 isn't particularly compliant, and defaults to quirks mode for most encodings (to preserver IE6 rendering on "broken" pages).

IE8 will be standards compliant.

Although CC has mainly firefox users, most of the internet users use IE because its packaged with windows. Hopefully someday that will change, but until then, IE needs to get with standards to stop frustrating web developers! IE 8 is a step in the right direction.

Currently, only one browser passes the ACID test (Opera). Since IE7 is about the furthest from being standards compliant, and uses a different DOM model, I'm not holding my breath on IE8.

JavaScript incompatibilities is another issue that frustrates me.

About the furthest? lol

I suppose IE8 can only be better than IE7.

I thought FF3 passed it (I'm not in FF3 or I would go test myself).

No current browsers pass the ACID3 test. Most do pass the ACID2 test though, also if we could help FF over-rule IE it would be good.

The big question here is why does Microsoft have to be so different?
